An online devotional for writers
I am a special messenger from Christ Jesus to you Gentiles. I bring you the Good News so that I might present you as an acceptable offering to God, made holy by the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:16, NLT)
A vision statement describes what your world will look like if a problem is solved or a goal is achieved. It addresses the future. Without a vision statement, you may veer off course.
A good vision statement has three qualities: it’s short. It’s future focused. And it’s specific.
The vision statement for Ikea, for instance, reads: “To create a better everyday life for many people.”
Paul had a vision statement that pressed him forward through heartbreak and suffering: “I bring you (Gentiles) the Good News so that I might present you as an acceptable offering to God, made holy by the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:16, NLT).
The vision statement that is short, future-focused, and that demonstrates how things will change as a result of your work – that’s the vision statement that will keep you focused and keep you inspired.
A good vision statement is short, future-focused, and specific.
Thank you for giving me a vision for the work you would have me to do. Let me define the change you want to make through me. Show me how to articulate that in a vision statement that keeps me focused and inspired.
In Jesus’s name, Amen.
